District Lay Servant Ministries
Our mission is to equip the laity to realize and respond to their call to ministry.
God calls every one of us to proclaim the presence and power of God through all that we say and do. How is God calling you to serve? With so many avenues of training, Lay Servant Ministries offers you a valuable education in multiple ministry areas.
